“This year we increased livestock by 452,000 head. For the first time
in [independent] Ukraine there was growth in cattle numbers,” he said
during a ceremony to mark the opening of a transshipment terminal of the
Nibulon company in Kyiv region on Thursday, July 26.
The premier also noted that this year the government had initiated a
new form of support for agricultural producers: subsidies for the
maintenance of breeding calves.
“Everyone, who wants to save, or raise [breeding calves] will receive state subsidies,” the premier added.
